5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
9 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
10 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals.
11
12 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
13 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
14 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
15 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
16
17 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
19
20 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
22
23 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
24 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
25
26 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
28 sed to properly strip out junk.
29
30 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
31 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
32 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
33
34 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
35 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
36
37 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
39
40 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
41 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
42 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
43 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
44 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
45 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
46
47 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
48 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
49 when unpacking tarball.
50
51 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
53 filesystem_tools code.
54
55 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
56 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
57 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
58 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
59 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
60
61 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
62 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
63 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
64 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
65
66 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
67 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
68
69 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
71 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
72
73 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
74 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
75 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
76
77 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
79 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
80 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
81 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
82 the install profile if available.
83
84 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
85 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
86 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
87
88 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
89 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
90
91 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92 took chroot out of grub_install command.
93
94 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
96 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
97 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
98 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
99 as it breaks the piping.
100
101 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
103
104 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
106 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
107 GLIInstallProfile.
108
109 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
111 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
112 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
113
114 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
116 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
117 to start/end sectors
118
119 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
120 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
121
122 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
124 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
125 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
126 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
127 for the generated script from spawn()
128
129 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
131 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
132 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
133 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
134
135 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
136 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
137
138 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
140
141 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
143 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
144
145 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
147
148 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
150
151 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
153 lang parameter to __init__()
154
155 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 updates to TODO list.
157
158 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
160 'emerge -p blah'
161
162 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
163 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
164 added quickpkg to TODO list
165
166 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
168 so that the installer can continue.
169
170 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
172 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
173 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
174
175 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
176 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
177 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
178
179 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
181 of adding them.
182
183 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
184 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
185
186 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
187 updated TODO list. (again)
188
189 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
190 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
191 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
192 fixed custom kernel config (again)
193
194 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
196 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
197
198 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
200 the partitions :P
201
202 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
204 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
205 blank.
206
207 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
209 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
210
211 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
213 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
214 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
215 mounting code.
216
217 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
219 sets it randomly.
220
221 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
223
224 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
225 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
226
227 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
229 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
230
231 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
233 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
234
235 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
237 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
238 be safe before third pass.
239
240 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
241 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
242 will test when i get back to school.
243 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
244 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
245
246 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
248 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
249 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
250 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
251
252 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
253 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
254
255 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
256 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
257
258 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
259 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
260 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
261
262 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
263 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
264 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
265 some may still have eluded me.
266
267 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
269 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
270
271 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
272 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
273
274 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
275 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
276 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
277 from GLIInstallProfile.
278
279 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
280 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
281
282 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
283 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
284 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
285
286 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
287 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
288 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
289
290 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
291 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
292 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
293
294 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
295 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
296 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
297
298 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
299 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
300 can be resized.
301
302 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
303 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
304 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
305
306 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
307 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
308 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
309
310 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
311 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
312 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
313 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
314 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
315
316 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
317
318 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
319 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
320 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
321
322 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
323
324 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
325 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
326 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
327 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
328 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
329 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
330 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
331
332 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
333
334 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
335 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
336 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
337 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
338 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
339 Added initial unit test code.
340
341 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
342
343 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
344 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
345 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
